1. See Section 5.2 for further details on ethnic group classifications.

2. From 2009-10 to 2013-14, legacy forces moved from a 13-group classification to a 21-group classification. During this transition period, a number of categories changed unexpectedly; especially around the 'Other White' and 'White British' categories. Caution is urged when comparing across years.

3. This table presents data for perpetrators using a compressed 13-group classification in order to maintain disclosure principles and to provide meaningful data.

4. Population estimates taken from the 2011 Scottish Census published by NRS, www.scotlandscensus.gov.uk
